Accessible Outdoor Recreation at Partridge Run Wildlife Management Area

by NEW YORK DIGITAL NEWS


Accessible interpretive trail at Partridge Run WMADEC staff completed construction of a half-mile long accessible interpretive trail at Partridge Run Wildlife Management Area (WMA) in Albany County. The project was led by DEC’s Young Forest Initiative and completed by DEC Region 4 Operations staff.

The trail is designed to increase public awareness about forest management and protection, specifically as it relates to wildlife management. The loop trail offers low-angle displays and information about different stages of forest growth and benefits to wildlife.

This site also has an accessible viewing tower, constructed in 2020, that provides an elevated view of vegetation managed for the Young Forest Initiative.

The interpretive trail project was funded with $132,177 from the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration Fund, the Environmental Protection Fund, and New York Works. Partridge Run WMA recreational activities include hunting, trapping, wildlife viewing and photography, and fishing.

The WMA is also a location on the New York State Birding Trail.
